You can read my other post about Teavana's Pu-Erh (ick) tasting like someone tramped through a musty cave in hiking boots then tramped all over the tea leaves. I didn't buy any leaves, just let the yutz behind the counter brew up a cup for me to try. Compared to Upton's Ti Guan Yin, there is a HUGE difference.

The Ti Kuan Yin you tasted must be of those the lowest quality that are selling in Asia. A good quality Ti Kuan Yin not suppose to taste "earthy". For your information, chinese use the low grade TKY as an daily offering to the diety...how do i know, cos i come from Asia.
